Bobby Brown Delays Tour as Daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown Remains Hospitalized

Bobby Brown has postponed an upcoming short tour in Australia by a couple of months as his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown continues to fight for her life in an Atlanta hospital.

The 21-year-old, the only child of the R&B singer and late iconic pop star Whitney Houston, was hospitalized on Jan. 31 after being found face down and unconscious in a bathtub at her and partner Nick Gordon's home. Bobby and other family members rushed to her side and have been keeping vigil for her ever since. In addition, his sister Tina Brown was hospitalized this past Sunday after suffering from "severe chest pains."

"Bobby Brown's upcoming Australian Tour, featuring special guests Treach and Kay-Gee from Naughty By Nature, has been postponed to May to allow Bobby Brown to spend further time with his family," the Australian site Ticketek said in a statement this week.

Bobby was initially supposed to perform four concerts in Australia, from March 18 to March 21. The shows will now take place on May 26, May 28, May 29 and May 30 and two of the venues have changed. The new dates are also displayed on touring company Abstract Entertainment's website.

Bobbi Kristina was placed in a medically induced coma soon after she was hospitalized. As of Wednesday, exactly 25 days after the incident, she remains on life support and is still unresponsive.

Earlier this week, Bobby drew criticism from many people online after they watched him on a broadcast of the 2015 BET Honors, thinking the event aired live. The ceremony was actually taped a week before his daughter's medical incident.

"Continued prayers for King of R&B Bobby Brown during this difficult time. (The #BETHonors is pre-taped)," cable network BET tweeted.
